SANTA CRUZ FOR MASH CX STIGMATA Oct 5, 2016 Categories: Cyclocross 0 Comment We are excited to launch a new collaboration with Santa Cruz Bicycles. We are long time fans of this local brand, and the cult following of the first Stigmata frame sets. Santa Cruz supports our cyclocross team, and wanted to create a special paint on the Stigmata CC. We enlisted Al Nelson, and drew inspiration from some of the bold graphics used on emergency vehicles worldwide. The paint work on these frames are just beautiful. Santa Cruz operates at the highest standard, and the finish work affirms their craft. There are 12 frame sets available, some sizes only have 1 or 2 pieces. Proceeds help support the 2016 MASH CX team racing program. We have the full kit available from Castelli. We love loud bikes and kits for CX, and Al smashed it with this seasons offering. Santa Cruz is helping us generate bikes for the team, race entry fees and gas by selling a select number of the frame sets, and we are grateful to be the exclusive shop for this art collaboration.

Using this material in key places uses less material overall, which is what shaves off more than half a pound from the frame.
